THE COLLEGE BOYS
Dozens or Houston-Area Alums are Leaving Their Mark at the College Level
By Matt Malatesta
Chuckie Keeton, Utah State, Cypress Creek -- Keeton nearly shocked Auburn at Auburn in Utah State's opener a year ago. Very effective before getting hurt.
Tim Cornett, UNLV, North Shore -- Will be the school's leading rusher for the past three seasons. That hasn't happened in more than a decade. Great combo of size and speed.
Donovonn Young, Illinois, Katy -- Started several games as a freshman and is their short yardage back. He fits right in the Big 10.
Mike Evans, Texas A&M, Galveston Ball -- Coming out of Galveston Ball, Evans was a last-minute add for the Aggies recruiting class. Look like he's gonna pay off as he uses6-foot-5 hoops skills to box out defenders.
Darius Johnson, SMU, Hightower -- Aside from being the MVP in SMU's last two bowl games and an first-team all-conference selection, the Hightower alum is tough as nails going across the middle.
DeAndrew White, Alabama, North Shore -- White is one of A.J. McCarron's top targets with his speed and size.
Others of Note: Devante Davis, UNLV, North Shore; Christian Jones, Northwestern, Westfield; Jordan Leslie, UTEP, Tomball; Russell Shepard, LSU, Cy Ridge
Cameron Fleming, Stanford, Cy Creek -- The 6-foot-6 lineman received All-Pac 10 honors a year ago, protecting Andrew Luck's backside.
Trey Hopkins, Texas, North Shore -- Hopkins received high kudos as a true freshman and earned himself some starting snaps. He now is a mainstay on the Longhorn line
Jake Matthews, Texas A&M, Elkins -- Genetics, will, football savvy, pedigree. Whatever you want to call it, Matthews has it.
Others of Note. Brenel Myers, Boise State, Westfield ; Ivory Wade, Baylor, Friendswood
Damion Square, Alabama, Jack Yates -- Square hasn't disappointed at Alabama as he is the next in line to anchor coach Nick Saban's defense.
David King, Oklahoma, Strake Jesuit -- King is repping the Houston-area private school well at OU.
Jon Lewis, TCU, Klein Oak -- Lewis played significant snaps as a true freshman and will only get better with experience.
Others of Note: Kendrick Payne, Cal, Klein Forest; Michael Sam, Missouri, Strake Jesuit; Terrance Lloyd, Baylor, Stratford; Keba Agostinho, Kansas, Katy Taylor
Will Ebner, Missouri, Friendswood -- Ebner is as steady as they come. He's battle through injuries and has had a great college career.
Alonzo Highsmith, Arkansas, Elkins -- Returned an interception for a touchdown versus LSU. After going the Juco route, he is one of the top backers in the SEC.
Shaun Lewis, Oklahoma State, Hightower -- Lewis is a sideline to sideline athlete, who should be NFL-bound.
Others of Note: Cam Nwosu, Rice, Klein Forest; David Nwubuisi, Northwestern, Episcopal
Brodrick Brown, Oklahoma State, Westfield -- The best corner of the bunch. He got on the map withSportsCenter Top 10 play.
Quandre Diggs, Texas, Angleton -- Moved into the starting lineup as freshman last year. He will be tested in the pass-happy Big 12.
Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State, Huntsville -- Explosive and elusive as a kick returner and has moved into the starting lineup at corner.
Craig Loston, LSU, Eisenhower -- Loston was the nation's No. 1 safety coming out of Ike. He has moved up the depth chart to start this season for one of the nation's top defenses.
Others of Note: Josh Hill, Cal, Klein Forest; Eric Rowe, Utah, Klein; Sam Holl, Baylor, Katy; Sam Carter, TCU, Sharpstown; Steven Campbell, Texas A&M, Jersey Village
Ryan Doerr, Kicker, Kansas State, Katy
Venric Mark, Kick Returner, Northwestern, St. Pius
